Proving up Damages and Swaying the Jury to Your Side
There are some cases where jury members will look at a plaintiff with a “jaundiced eye,” so to speak, even though it is the plaintiff who has been injured. This is typically the case when a plaintiff has suffered a soft tissue injury such as a sprain, pulled muscle, or whiplash. These kinds of injuries aren’t as tangible to a jury as, say, a broken or amputated limb. But even though these soft tissue injuries don’t look serious to the untrained eye, they can many times hide more insidious problems that may take months to heal. If you have incurred this kind of injury, then you will definitely require the assistance of a skilled and seasoned accident attorney who can convince a jury that your injury is severe. We have a cadre of witnesses who are experts in nearly every field of medicine who can testify as to the seriousness of your injury – even to the most skeptical jury member – in order to prove the damages that are owed to you.
Cases with More Than One Liable Party
There are many times that more than one party either outright caused an accident to occur, or played a role in the chain of events that led to it taking place. Say your accident was caused by a drunk driver. If this was the case, then you could possibly sue the alcohol-serving establishment that served that patron past the point of intoxication. This is possible due to dram shop laws in the state of Texas. If the accident took place because of some kind of mechanical malfunction, then the manufacturer could be held responsible for a design or assembly flaw. Similarly, the mechanic who worked on your car before the accident could be held responsible for a maintenance error. In instances where multiple parties contribute to the cause of an accident, you must file separate lawsuits against all of them. Also, the damages must be accurately calculated in regard to each party’s degree of liability. Accurately assessing blame and calculating relative damages can be a very complex process, and best performed by an experienced accident lawyer in order to make sure you get the proper amount of restitution you have coming to you.
